Track Name: Are friends what you need?
[none]
Track Name: You can see miles from here
The child within me
Is starting to grow
And I don't know
If I'll have the strength
To open myself and see it through

But I can't feel a thing
The feeling's not separate
From the thought
And somewhere here
I've found faith

In what makes things new
In what makes me new

You can see miles from here
Why am I holding back?

I've come full circle now
And found myself the same
Track Name: These fields want seed
Summer here is leaves
Coke for a smile and please
And luck in a breeze

Men here are like trees
Stuck in this ground
Blowing around

And if on summer nights you cry
It's cause your love's a firefly
Just give it your best try
Just give it your best try

What we planted here grew well
But these fields want seed
Are friends what you need?

And if a son smiled up at you
Could it make you ok?
Could it get in the way?

And if on summer nights you cry
It's cause your love's a firefly
Just give it your best try
Just give it your best try
Track Name: Airtight
And that like I
Cling to life
In every word you've said

And if you need
Time apart
Then I'll remove
And when I sing the words
That stick in my head...

I'll sing to myself instead
And I don't mind
If space can replace
What I've been missing all along
And fill this empty place
Where I don't belong

I'll hold you airtight
Let things blow over
Track Name: Three mile run
This three mile run to Jake's mother's house
Past this winter's frozen land
Will I one day walk, bent by fifty years
Held by love's soft holding hand?

And the will that pushes my pounding heart
And the lungs that suck my breath
Will they one day slow to hold the hand
Of a lover stilled by death?

And I want you here

So when your summer dress and your quietness
Are a shy excuse for fear
I'll run home to you and untie these shoes
And always keep you near

Cos I want you here
Track Name: If I paint I'll paint with colors
If I paint I'll paint with colors
If tomorrow comes I'll wake
If I sing I'll sing you love songs
If I break, it won't be long
